By saying this, lets just think about how many teams have done that compared to other solutions.
What I called(the gurney), was utilized in many ways to allow extraction. Both in front of the wheel arch as well as aft it using its low pressure to allow extraction out of the slit(that in turn has flow out of the wheel well). I am in the opinion that an gurney provides as both an more easy fix than than letting the air flow in the sidepod as well as more efficient. Air in that area is high pressure and turbulent, which you in turn let flow into the sidepod ruining most flow there. I think that, mostly because you seem to want to redesign the whole car bit by bit an gurney is better since you are likely to change the front end in the future, rendering any work you do now as useless.
Also fences on the front splitter(take a look at the oreca for example)can be pretty useful
